The Annie Moore Story
This Rynhart sculpture is a wonderful tribute to Irish history. Annie Moore was the first immigrant to pass through Ellis Island in New York Harbour. She arrived, aged 15, on the steam-ship Nevada from Cobh (then known as Queenstown) in County Cork, with her two brothers Philip and Anthony, in 1888. In 1992 Jeanne Rynhart was commissioned to sculpt a life sized Sculpture of Annie Moore and her two brothers, which is now situated at the Cobh Heritage Centre. Jeanne has sculpted this keepsake in the likeness of her original statue. A life sized sister statue of Annie Moore is also situated on Ellis Island, New York. This work is a powerful reminder of one's Irish roots and makes the perfect Irish gift. The sculpture is handmade in the county that Annie left, making it that much more special!
